Mike, thanks for taking time to find and watch the King video.

[QUOTE=TheDevilMadeMe;55808303]
Either one of the two sources is out to lunch, or King got a lot faster at some point.

That's what I am taking from the scouting reports. The ones that complain specifically about his speed are from the late 1980s... King hit his stride in the early 1990s and the criticism is more generally about his "skating", which could be anything but appears to mean agility.

What Mike found on the video seems to parallel those observations -- he wasn't Mike Gartner, but he was a quick goal-scoring type of winger. Which, as I said at the beginning of this whole fracas, is exactly what I intended to draft for a partner to Raleigh. Still not sure why that's an issue.
